SACRAMENTO (April 16, 2012) - Assemblyman Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber) today was honored as Taxpayer Hero of 2011 by the Family Action PAC, an organization formed in July of 2000 to focus on upholding conservative values and supporting conservative candidates.
"Private property rights and freedom are inseparable. You cannot have private property rights without freedom and you can't have freedom without private property rights," said Nielsen. "It seems that private property rights are always at risk at the hands of a too-powerful government."
Nielsen is the founding President of the California Alliance to protect private property rights, the foremost private property rights advocacy organization in California.
